dylan thomas quote

“Why do men think you can pick love up and re-light it like a candle? Women know when love is over.” 
? Dylan Thomas

Together they were for 10 years or more
In love, glad to be just two
But something happened on a rugby trip
That changed their point of view

Too many beers, dulled the brain
Raised his libido to great heights
Made the mistake of a one night stand
His true love was out of sight.

He confessed it all when he got home
Heartbroken they both just knew
That it was over for them
Nothing was left to rescue.

After a few months they met again
He was charming hoped things would go right
They had a meal together talked through their pain
Both were sad that they’d had the fight

He was convinced t would be all ok
That she would forgive him without doubt
Just one silly mistake he keeps on thinking
Surely she would rather be with him than without.

“Why do men think you can pick love up               )             
 and re-light it like a candle?                                      )quote of dylan thomas              Women know when love is over.”                           )

That it was more than she could handle.

So they parted as they met
Sad and on their own
The bird of happiness no longer theirs
Taken flight and gone.

Motto is:          Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.
